    In a lot of situations failure leads to growth. Everyone fails at something at one point or another and most are able to pick themselves up, dust themselves off and try again. failure is an important part of the learning curve. It can't be avoided and once overcome, it builds character!! I think it's actually good for you, it that makes sense.

    My dad always said that there was no failure because with each mistake you learned something new. The only time there could be true failure is if you failed to even try. I taught this to my own children and try to instill this into the students I teach.
